Peep at Puffins

One of the most surprising superstars in this northern paradise is the puffin, also known as the clown of the sea or the penguin of the north. Iceland is home to the world’s largest puffin colonies where you can observe these birds in their natural habitats.

There are between eight and ten million puffins in Iceland. These birds spend most of the day out at sea and when they are not swimming or eating fish, they rest on the waves. Mornings and evenings are the best time to see puffins. They like to nest up high, so bring your binoculars for better puffin peeping.
